I have no idea how to wire this converter!

We recently bought this 1975 26' Argosy. The original univolt was very loud and caused the lights to strobe. We bought a new powermax 45 amp converter and separate fuse panel. I will attach pics of what we had and what we bought. There was no battery in our camper and no cables/wires going to the battery box. I get the 12v wires go into the fuse panel but I'm not sure what goes into the back of the converter box in the + and - outlets or how you get power from the converter over to the fuse panel. Sorry, I am a bit more challenged than most people when it comes to this stuff. Do any of you have pictures of how yours is wired. I've called several local rv repair people and they won't call me back. Thanks!

did it come with any type of installation manual. with no battery I would guess it wires into the 120v and then the load side would be your 12v fuse panel.

on my 2005 it, convertor, plug into wall plate and has wires from convertor to hot and ground of battery and to 12v fuse panel.

just guessing here.

I found some excellent video on YouTube when I did my install. Really helped make it a painless project.
